Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Installing Oracle 8.1.7 on Redhat 9 box it is possible?

I believe others have successfully installed Oracle 8.1.7 and Red Hat 9 so it should be doable. My Oracle install notes might be of some help.

Victor, note that at least for use with OpenACS, you should not have to install any other JDK, not from Blackdown or anywhere else. 8.1.7 comes with the only JDK it needs for the install.
